Strainsert's new wireless load sensors and load cell telemetry systems enable long distance, cablefree measurement

(PresseBox) ( Towcester Northamptonshire, )
Two new high-performance load sensor products from Strainsert Inc., based on license-free, 2.4GHz
telemetry with a working range up to 800 metres, will facilitate straightforward and cost-effective installation
for single- or multi-sensor use over long distances, problematic installations and otherwise challenging load
measurement tasks. Especially compelling as an alternative for system set-ups where long and noise-prone
cable runs in traditional wired systems prove complex and expensive, the new wireless load sensors and
load cell telemetry systems are available in the UK from Ixthus Instrumentation, Strainsert’s exclusive UK
distribution partner. The new products include wireless load pins with integrated wireless transmitters,
configured as standard or custom designed clevis pins or shackle bolts for single or multiple sensor systems.
Complementary to these wireless-integrated sensors, the newly available T24 series wireless load cell
telemetry system comprises modular transmitters, base stations and accessories with the adaptability for
conversion of existing wired Strainsert sensors with strain, current or voltage output - or for the development
of completely new wireless system designs. With IP67 rated enclosures and built for the harshest conditions
for weighing and load monitoring tasks in aerospace, industrial, construction, mobile machinery and more,
the range is supported with comprehensive software tools for straightforward configuration and monitoring.

Strainsert’s T24 wireless transmitter modules are available in two module sizes with a choice of
batteries – a compact AA cell version or for longer battery life a larger sized D cell module. The
electrical and range performance specifications for both modules are similar. The 4-wire bridge
measurement and 4.5 to 5.25 VDC excitation characteristics suit Strainsert sensor requirements.
The modular system offers a choice of four USB powered base stations that are used for
interfacing with PCs or PLCs through a choice of USB, RS232 or RS485 ports for configuration
and control. They work in concert with the T24 transmitter modules, facilitating the data capture
through the T24 software toolkit which is included with the wireless systems. Further system
accessories include Modbus Gateway and ASCII serial interfaces, analogue and relay output
1/2
modules and wireless range extenders for up to 1600 metres. Also included are wireless handheld
receivers and LED display modules.

The Strainsert wireless load pin has all the specification characteristics and interfacing possibilities
offered by the T24 telemetry systems with the potential advantage found in its integrated load
sensor component and transmitter design that can further aid installation planning and
commissioning.
